Saucesational: An Experiment in Applesauce–Honeycrisp

WOW!  All I can say about this is wow!

IMG_2479So, I peeled, cored, and sliced the most popular apple in our orchard – the Honeycrisp.  And I put the slices in the crock pot on low for a few hours.  Now folks LOVE to eat this apple.  I’ll admit – I think it’s good but I like a lot of different varieties too.  It is an expensive apple though so we haven’t cooked with it much.  But – I had to sauce it so I could let you all know what would happen.  IMG_2480

The sauce was chunky, juicy, and DELICIOUS!  It was super, super good applesauce!  It is definitely ranked at the top of my personal sauce list!  WOW!  Now, with the way they cooked I would say they would be great in a crisp or as sauce.  Hmmm…I’m thinking I may even try them with our Taffy Apple Cake mix…  BUT I personally would not used them in a pie.  They are just so juicy I think a crust may have a hard time not getting soggy.  But as a sauce – seriously – WOW!
